FAQ's about myself

These are some constantly asked questions and misconceptions I recieve:
:star::star::star::star::star::iconstarplz::star::star::star::star::star:
:bulletred: Do you do Requests and other services?
-Yes I do. If the Services list has all green boxes, that means all my services are open. However, I do journals on available specials and different holiday services as well. If you need more info on a certain service, just look at the list and the info under the green box with the service you'd like me to do.
:bulletpurple: You draw alot of Sonic pics. Do you love Sonic?
- No , I just like drawing the characters because I've gotten use to drawing the character style. Even though it appears that all I draw is Sonic characters, I do draw other character types such as VG characters, animals, MLP, plants and anthro. I draw anything but humans (I utterly suck at drawing people).
:bulletblue: Are you a friendly artist?
-Yes, I don't bite and I'm willing to chat to anyone. The only time I'm unfriendly is if I or a friend of mine is being threatened (at which point, I block the said troll from my page permanently).
:bulletgreen: Why don't any of your pics have mature content in it?
-I'm generally a more family-friendly artist (all though I keep my more intimate material on FA). I perfer the art that people of all ages can see without cringing or complaining of their eyes burning in horror.
:bulletyellow: Do you do any RPing?
-No, I used to but not anymore. An unnamed deviant ruined it for me so no RPing from me.
:bulletorange: Can I feature your character in one of my pics?
-Yes but under a few conditions:
:star: You must say the character of mine's that you featured in the pic belongs to me (I credit you if I feature one of your characters in a pic I drew, all I expect is that you return the favor).
:star: Do Not draw my character in a way your mom would highly disapprove of (in otherwords no inflation, Mature content or yaoi).
:bulletblack: How come you don't let people critique your pieces?
-I've had a bad experience with critiques so I don't take critiques lightly. A simple one worder to 10000 worder is sufficient enough for me.
Wll that's the whole 411. Anymore questions will be posted on here.

How to place a signature on art

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 22, 2014, 1:52 PM



So with the recent rise in art theft, even the signatures put on plain colored backgrounds doesn't work. 75% of the time art thieves, tracers and recolorists will target pieces that DO NOT have a watermark (a transparent signature placed on an art piece) or fan art such as fan characters, and even coloring or WIP pieces. So here's a nifty way to keep ahead of those art thieves, tracers and recolorists:

Method 1.
Watermarks
While they may not look attractive on an art piece, a watermark helps discourage theft due to them being so conspicuous. 
dA has Watermarks as an option such as shown below.

Of Aliens and Robots by CandiPhoenixes
Or you can make you own if you want a nicer looking one.

Method 2. 
Inconspicuous Signature
These are signature hidden within the image or at piece in a hard to find and erase spot. One example could be this:
KandyDevil Stained Glass by CandiPhoenixes

If you do look close enough it's hidden within the pattern.


Method 3.
Place signature in a multi-colored or "busy" area of the pic
The easiest way to tell if your signature is if you place it in a very "busy" area of the pic. if you use dark colors, bright colors or light colors, place a signature matching the colors so it'll blend in with the colors.

Create a complex character
Create a unique never thought of character
Use a weird species

So now that dA has pretty much permitted "unlawful theft" of others art, here's some rules about my art:

1. I only permit usage of any of my FC's or OC's in fan art, contest submissions, collabs, art trades, requests or when I permit others to do so.
2. If you'd like to feature an OC or FC of mine, you need only ask. I will permit you use them for all art EXCEPT:
-Pornography
-mature content pics (except for zombification)
-hate art (anti-fandom, anti-religious, etc.)
3. I will not permit tracing of my art,
but if you ask, I can provide you a free custom base to assist you with bettering yourself artistically.
4. If you don't ask my permission, all I ask is that you be decent enough to give credit if you trace one of my characters.
5. I'm not in to hounding down art thieves, but if you need help bettering your art, I can offer help and encouragement so you can do better.

My big rule for Art Thieves:
Show your true talent and never be ashamed. All artists don't start off as professionals or with a golden, magical paintbrush in their hands, they started off drawing stick figures, but got better with time and practice. Sure it's not easy to have the patience to try and learn, but you'd be surprised what you can discover and accomplish just by trying out a form of art. There are so many art forms out there to try and....who knows, you may be good at making fancy cookies, or making cute jewelry, you just have to try. :)

Ok so here's some likes and dislikes on certain subjects brought up to me via comment,
notes, etc.

:star: Why do draw Sonic all the time? I hate Sonic (insert improper terminology here):
:bulletblue: First of all, I primarily draw Sonic characters/fan characters because it is what I am best attributed to drawing. I can draw other things like My Little Pony, and for those of you who are fans of niether Sonic nor Ponies I can also draw human and -like characters (to a certain extent), Anthros (feral and normal), Monsters, Chibis, Non-Anthro animals, cartoon characters from other shows (eg, Adventure time, 90's cartoons, 80's cartoons, hanna barbara animal characters), Creepy noir pics and mythical creatures.

:star: I hate your guts.:
:bulletblue: Cry me a river, build a bridge and GET OVER IT! I've had people say that they hate my guts 2154 times in my life and possibly counting. Trust me I ain't (one of very few times I'll use incorrect terminology to get a point across) phased by this. You can say you hate me, but I'll block you, flag you and delete your hate notes. I am not going anywhere soon so don't bother.

:star: Why is most of your material on here primarily family-friendly? :
:bulletblue: I stick with kid and Family friendly pics because that's what I stick to. Most of my fan-base and friends are primarily younger groups and several families. I will occassionally draw pics with very subtle innuendos, very minimal blood, mild comic violence, slapstick comedy, but I will only go that far. However, I will draw PG-13 pieces and post them on my FurAffinity account. If you want my less family-friendly material, check out CandiCockatiel (my FA name).

:star: Do you take requests, commissions, art trades, kiribans, ACEOs, etc.?:
:bulletblue: As a matter of fact I do accept commissions, ACEOs, Adoptable customs, Kiribans. I have a journal that shows what services are open, what each of the services offer, and costs (:points: or $) of commissions and non-prize art packages. It will also feature new services being offered and a current check list of people who are awaiting pics or pics from art-trades and collabs I'm waiting for. I also have the current service statuses up in the point donation box.

:star: How much experience at this do you have? :
:bulletblue: I have 20 years of self-experience (you heard and saw right), 1 year of digital design experience gained in high school, and 6 months culinary arts experience (professional). I started drawing traditionally since I was two and have had alot of practice over time. The experience with computer rendered art started back in early 2005 and since then I have greatly improved.

:star: Can I add you to my facebook, skype, wikia page, etc.? :
:bulletblue: I don't mind just as long as I know you completely either online or offline. I generally allow friends, close friends and family to add me. If you are a complete stranger or someone I've just met, I'll have to get to know who you are before I add you.

:star: I drew a gift for you. :
:bulletblue: I absolutely adore gifts and fanart. All I ask is that if you plan on including my character in a contest entry or another pic for someone, ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST. I would hate to see a pic be shot down because you are being accused of theft or you didn't get my permission.

Paypal: Only revealed to interested Clients.

Personal Quotes: even though life's confusing, you just have to make it through life's maze.
A true artist shows their worth by how much experience they've gain, not by the treasures they recieve.
